Couples Counselling

Couples counselling can help with:

  • Strengthening and reconnecting your relationship
  • Pre-marriage counselling sessions
  • Managing a relationship crisis
  • A break-up or divorce

Being in a relationship is an art

While good relationships help us to weather the hard times in life, sometimes the relationship itself can become the storm.

Communication may break down, and a busy life can get in the way of being able to slow down together to explore what troubles are keeping you two apart.

Rory Nicol Couples Counsellor

In our couples counselling sessions, I wil work alongside both of you to get to the heart of your difficulties. We’ll explore where your relationship is getting stuck and where it needs more focus. I will help you clarify your words and feelings so that you’re better heard and understood.

In our sessions, you’ll both learn how to strengthen your relationship by finding the connection that originally brought you both together.

In essence, I’ll help you develop more awareness in order to learn where you’re stuck today and how to clear up issues when they arise tomorrow.

I’m trained in both Gestalt therapy and EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) for couples, marriage, and relationship counselling (learn more about EFT here). With these approaches, I help you bring your stories, and your heartfelt feelings, to the forefront of your relationship. I work from a place of care and honesty to support raising the unspoken words and feelings that are holding back your relationship. Whether you are looking to connect more deeply together, or if you’re looking to end the relationship, it is my goal to help you both find the space to let your relationship move into the one that you need it to be.

I work both online and in person. Because of the current social isolation, I am working solely through secure online video for the time being (research has shown that online therapy can be just as helpful as in person sessions, for more info on the efficacy of online therapy, see here).

First phone/video consultation is free. Most insurance companies cover the cost of my sessions. Sessions cost $195 + HST. I offer sliding scale on a limited basis, please ask me if I have space available.

All couples sessions are 75 mins long.
